Sun bumps UltraSparc to 1.8GHz
Sun also began a promotion for IBM and HP customers, offering free Sun Fire E6900 and E25K server chassis, hardware valued at $55,000 and $315,000, respectively. The new servers now include a newer input-output subsystem, PCI-X, the company said. Sun has introduced an ambitious low-end processor, the UltraSparc T1 "Niagara"; the IV+ is for more mainstream computing tasks.
